commissioner dooley, instead of "consideration," but to request that the department of environment have plans in place for -- a plan in place for existing supermarkets around the convenience zone or creating a recycle center or recycling on-site, with a priority of working with those supermarkets that currently have an exempt status and may be losing it. this is separate from for new and remodeled supermarkets, a recommendation is that that discussion and plan will be triggered through the entitlement process. but for existing supermarkets where they are not going to go through the entitlement process, i think, at the committee meeting, as you had noted, there is the interest to start working with those supermarkets to start putting a plan in place. does that make sense? >> yes. actually one of the difficulties with the hank situation, because it's been unfolding over many years and i have been in touch with the whole foods and andronickos and they were never really motivated as [hro-pbgs/] as along as the center was there to do anything. they were glad not to have a recycling center on

of a union better pay and better benefits environment but who don't contribute to the union's survival at all. this only works if we're all in it together. and more than that, this law is going to starve unions of their funding. from a political perspective in this democracy that is their power. there are actually two separate pieces of legislation. first applies to private sector employees like autoworkers. second one is public sector employees like teachers. though, of course, it exempts firefighters and police officers which is a classic move that republicans use off ton pit unions against each other. this is the same trick that they probably learned i'm sure everybody knows from their colleagues in wisconsin. but even as protests continue, these bills are heading to governor rick schneider's desk. what's he going to do? back in february, he criticized the right-to-work laws in congressional testimony. he criticized them. >> my perspective is i made it clear it is not on my agenda. right to work is an issue that's a
